    mongomery /waller/grimes county wildfires
    i know many you have been seeing the news about the wildfires in mongomery/waller/grimes county. i ask each to please pray for so many that are effected by this fire. Bull and I have been under volunteer evacuation off and on since monday. the fire area off 1486 area isn't far from us. i know that there are a few geocachers in the areas of the fire.  at the moment we aren't evacuated.  if any geocacher in the area of the fire needs any help please contact us. we do have a fenced in front yard big enough for large dogs. pic taken by benboosted on friday night. corner of 1774 and 1488..which is about 2 miles from our house.

    we stumble across a cache in spring creek park, put out by spacemanspiff, which got us started- team terratrekkers got us hooked even more by inviting us to a camping event. enjoyed the company of so many of the older cachers-- it kept us going. we still enjoy going out for a cache now and then, but we don't cache near the way did years ago. we have taken numerous cachers under our wings and pushed them to cache. and we still love the sport of caching.

    REQUESTING CACHES TO ARCHIEVED.
    i been seeing alot of newbies as well older caches..requesting caches to archieved without even giving the cache owner a chance to fix them..i have had two in one week..and one last month..and when i go and check they are in their hiding places...
    i got need maintenance and need archieved on one..within a hour of each other by the same person. i hate to have to travel to la porte or alvin to check my caches just to find that they are still there...my cache in alvin- now archieved was hanging right where it was suppose to be it. i sent emails to a couple of newbies..to say hey--give the owner a chance to fix it..you only have to look at the cache page owner to see if they are still active cachers or not..i don't get like i would like..but i am on geocaching everyday..
    am i wrong for asking people to email the owner first?? just my two cents

    About a year ago somebody got a cache approved almost on top of the posted coordinates for one of my puzzle caches (it has since been archived), so I began to think unless the cache itself is located at the coordinates the 1/10th mile rule didn't apply.  I even think I've seen that stated in these forums.  If his statement is correct how did the person get their real cache approved at the posted coords of my puzzle cache?

    TO ANSWER THIS...YEARS AGO..SINCE WE HAVE BEEN CACHING GOING ON 8 YEARS NOW--YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO LIST THE CORDS OF FOR ALL LEGS OF A MULTI OR PUZZLE..ONLY THE FINAL WHEN U SUBMITTED THEM. AND THEN THE RULES CHANGED --AND GC.COM DOES NOT HAVE THE CORDS OF THOSE OLDER CACHES--SO WHEN A NEWBIE CAME ALONG AND PLACES A CACHE..THEY MAY NOT KNOW THERE IS A CACHE THERE..SINCE THEY HAVEN'T FOUND ALL THE CACHES IN THAT AREA.....PUZZLE CACHES--THE CORDS COULD BE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN..NOW THEY ARE WITHIN 2 MILES OF THE ACTUAL CACHE....

    DEATH IN THE FAMILY.
    HUBBY BULL AND I ARE HEART BROKEN TO ANNOUNCE THAT LILLY HAS PASSED AWAY.  MANY OLDER CACHERS KNEW HER. SHE HAD A TRAVEL TAG THAT NUMEROUS PEOPLE HAVE LOGGED. SHE ATTENDED NUMEROUS EVENTS OVER THE PAST 7 YEARS. SHE WAS 14 YEARS OLD AND LOVED BY MANY.
